Re: [Xen-devel] Automotive PV drivers project request (need more input)

Hi all,

I collated this thread into http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Embedded_and_Automotive_PV_Drivers_Project_Proposal

This raises a number of extra questions besides the licensing questions I raised to Artem earlier.

Q1: should we have separate git repos per OS, e.g.

instead of

This sounds more user friendly and scalable

Q2: should http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Windows_PV_Drivers_Incubation_Project_Proposal & http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Embedded_and_Automotive_PV_Drivers_Project_Proposal share infrastructure (e.g. lists, web portal, git://xenbits.xen.org/pvdrivers/) or even be merged

There is no clear-cut answer.

Arguments against merging:
* Forces people with very different interests into one subproject (aka creates unnecessary noise)
* Dilutes Project Leadership

Arguments for merging:
* Critical mass for graduation is more easily reached (but may be fake)
* Increases chances of building a sustainable community

If we don't merge, we should not use the generic label "pvdrivers" for xenbits and mailing lists for this proposal, but use something more specific. We also need a label for the Windows PV driver project.

Best Regards
